At the December 10 memorial for Nelson Mandela, President Obama joined a sordid lineup of heads of state — a UN-style dictators’ club — to lavish unstinted praise and adulation upon the former president of South Africa, who died on December 5. In his eulogy, President Obama compared Mandela to America’s Founding Fathers and referred to him as “a giant of history” and “the great liberator,” invoking Mandela’s name as an inspiration for the advancement of freedom, justice, equality, and human rights throughout the world.
However, as The New American has reported for decades, the carefully constructed sainted image of Mandela is marred by a host of facts and overwhelming documentary evidence, to wit:
• Mandela was, throughout his entire adult career, not only an underground member of the violent, Soviet-directed South African Communist Party, but was also a top leader, a member of the Central Committee of the SACP.
• Mandela worked closely for decades with Joe Slovo, head of the SACP (and a Soviet KGB colonel) to help the Reds take control of the African National Congress and purge it of all leaders who opposed the SACP’s Soviet ties and Communist terrorist tactics.
• Mandela and Slovo were appointed by the SACP as the co-leaders of Umkhonto we Sizwe, the Communist-created terrorist group that viciously tortured and murdered thousands of black South Africans, as well as whites, often employing the ANC’s signature “necklace” method of terror/torture/murder.
• Mandela steadfastly denied, time after time over the decades, his membership in the SACP and Umkhonto we Sizwe, but on the day after his death, the SACP released a statement acknowledging that he had been a top SACP leader all along. This admission is also an admission that Mandela was a lifelong liar.
